war republican politicians told americans that dissent would encourage a tax on u.s. troops abroad. that images of american torture in abu ghraib would inflame anti-american sentiment and democrats should heed the words of general david petraeus. now the coalition commander in afghanistan, he says a planned koran burning this saturday will encourage attacks on u.s. troops abroad and that images of the koran burning will inflame anti-american sentiment. so where are those republican politicians now? petraeus' remarks followed a protest yesterday in kabul. afghan protesters chanting "death to america" and throwing rocks at passing u.s. military convoys until the leaders of the rally told them to stop doing so. petraeus then gave an interview to "the wall street journal" about the koran burning and gave almost identical comments to other media as well. to quote him. it could endanger the troops and it could endanger the overall effort in afghanistan. it is precisely the kind of action the taliban uses and could cause significant problems not just here but everywhere in the world we ar
in cleveland, he attacked us for closing a few of these loopholes. mr. boehner and the republicans in congress said no to these projects. fought them tooth and nail. mr. boehner has so far said no to infrastructure, that's bad for america. so let me be clear to mr. boehner and everybody else, we should not hold middle class tax cuts hostage any longer. when these same republicans, including mr. boehner, were in charge, the number of earmarks and pet projects went up, not down. >> is that the presidentรง gettg turbocharged in the president hammered boehner throughout the speech including this. when he laid out an incredible small business idea and proposal. i am proposing that all-american businesses should be allowed to write off all the investment they do in 2011. and this will help small businesses upgrade their plants and equipment and will encourage large corporations to get off the sidelines and start putting their profits to work in places like cleveland and toledo and dayton. to most of you, i'll bet this just seems like common sense. but not to mr. boehner and his allies. >> i think t

. joining us now from the north lawn of the white house austin goolsby the president's adviser. the president was pretty critical of john boehner in his speech in cleveland. boehner sfas the president is serious about finally focusing on jobs a good start would be taking the advice of his recently departed budget director and freezing all tax rates coupled with cutting federal spending to where it was before all the bailouts, government takeovers, and stimulus spending sprees. he is referring to peter orszag the budget director during the obama administration who wrote a piece in the "new york times" this week for the next two years keep tax rates including for the wealthy exactly where they are right now. >> look, i think representative boehner is a little confused about what peter orszag was suggesting and threw in on that second bid let's go back to the final bush budget of 2008 as if that were the gold standard we wanted to return to when in fact that was the final culmination of exactly the policy that got us into this mess. >> to be precise peter orszag was not recommendi
're not back to work. and so the question is, did we need, as you suggest, more medicine or did we use the wrong medicine? and you can do all the economic models you want but many americans think what happened here is we had a big stimulus, it was somehow a lot of pork barrel spending to get through congress, we bailed out wall street, we didn't bail out main street and they want to know, where's the beef? >> today in the press conference there was a kind of undercurrent of questions that essentially goes like this, didn't you try to do too much? didn't you just take your eye off the ball when it came to the economy by doing health care as well? some other things in the first 18 or 19 months. do you think at the white house they think that? they never admit it but do you think they think they tried too much and they should have kept their eye more clearly on the economy now? >> i think that some of them do think that. i think the problem was they had a short-term economic focus and a very long-term focus on things like health care. and they kind of let the middle part take care of itse

us later this hour and talk exactly about that and explain what taxing the rich really means. and you may be surprised about how that all works out. and just to go on a point you were making yesterday, ryan, i think the biggest story about all these tax cuts is the pressure that president obama and his administration is going to feel from other democrats, not republicans. >> it's there. >> from democrats because now you have four senators who want to increase the tax cuts for the wealthy, for everyone and at least a dozen house democrats. so, you know, will that continue to grow as they move forward and want to be re-elected in november? that's what i think will be the biggest. >> for example, senator ben nelson says i think we should extend the bush tax cuts. senator michael bennett of colorado, same thing. joe lieberman, evan bahn, ken conrad, among the house members, bobby bright of alabama, jim heinz of connecticut. jerry connolly of virginia. gary peters of ohio so the president today will tee off on john boehner and he's going to tee off on republicans. these guys and these wome
the country would say, "we're not there yet." if the election is about the policies that are going to move us forward versus the policies that will get us back into a mess, then i think the democrats will do very well. >> holman: one such policy is mr. obama's push to extend middle-class tax cuts, something he argued should garner bipartisan support. >> 97% of americans make less than $250,000 a year... $250,000 a year or less. and i'm saying we can give those families-- 97%-- permanent tax relief. now, that seems like a common- sense thing to do. and what i've got is the republicans holding middle-class tax relief hostage because they're insisting we've got to give tax relief to millionaires and billionaires to the tune of about $100,000 per millionaire, >> holman: on health care, the president was pressed about a government report showing health care costs on the rise. that, despite the passage of legislation aimed at bending down the cost curve. >> we didn't think that we were going to cover 30 million people for free, but that the long-term trend, in terms of how much the average family i
